rebellion

If I can make it clear that I’m still defying the Capitol right up to the end, the Capitol will have killed me… but not my spirit. What better way to give hope to the rebels?

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

You haven’t hurt people — you’ve given them an opportunity. They just have to be brave enough to take it.

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

Yes, victors are our strongest. They’re the ones who survived the arena and slipped the noose of poverty that strangles the rest of us. They, or should I say we, are the very embodiment of hope where there is no hope. And now twenty-three of us will be killed to show how even that hope was an illusion.

A spark could be enough to set them ablaze.

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

The boldest form of dissent they can manage. Silence. Which says we do not agree. We do not condone. All of this is wrong.

Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Taking the kids from our districts, forcing them to kill one another while we watch – this is the Capitol’s way of reminding us how totally we are at their mercy. How little chance we would stand of surviving another rebellion. Whatever words they use, the real message is clear. “Look how we take your children and sacrifice them and there’s nothing you can do. If you lift a finger, we will destroy every last one of you. Just as we did in District Thirteen”.
